Hovering Hawks Quilt Block

I just added the Hovering Hawks Quilt Block to MyWebQuilter.com.  Here are three versions colored with fabrics available on the Color Block page.

 
 

 


 
This block is a nine patch with half square triangles.  Rotating and flipping this block in a quilt give many beautiful variations.

Helping Quilts of Valor Project

I received a very nice email from a user of MyWebQuilter.com.  She wrote:
 
"Wonderful software.  I am the leader of a Quilts of Valor quilting group, Not Forgotten QOV.  We are all volunteers who make our quilts to be presented to service members and veterans to thank them for their service.  We are planning a sewing marathon for February 2016.  Tomorrow our group is going to start cutting out 20 quilt kits for the marathon.  We are planning very simple quilts for this event.  Your software has enabled me to design them and print them out so that we can get cutting and sewing."
 
I am very glad my software helped your project!  My dad was a Vietnam veteran.  Not Forgotten QOV is a great organization helping our veterans.
